I’m sure this will come as no surprise to the few of you who follow my blog regularly. I’ve only posted one review in the last two weeks and that one wasn’t even planned. If you read my last NaNoWriMo update then you know that I got a job. This is my first “regular” job that I’ve had, and by regular I mean 8 hour shifts, on my feet, dealing with people, that sort of thing. I’ve had a few jobs in the past but none of them fall in those categories. Anyway, the majority of my shifts are 4:30AM – 12:30PM which has resulted in me having to change my sleeping schedule as well as my regular one. (I know I’m babbling, bear with me) Until I can get (relatively) used to the hours and can hopefully stop being exhausted all the time I can’t do blogging at a level that is acceptable to my standards.
I don’t want this blog to turn into a meme-only type of thing, I WANT to do reviews, I just don’t have time. One of my favorite bloggers as well as one of the most loyal readers & commenters of my blog recently did a post (check it out here) about how she posts daily. I knew that many of the bookish bloggers had reviews scheduled, and just a posting schedule in general, but I thought that if I worked at it I could get ahead without doing so. For a while I was right, but then NaNoWriMo consumed two weeks of my time which turned out to be my last two pre-working weeks. I don’t regret doing NaNoWriMo at all, I really enjoyed writing and interacting with other NaNos, but I haven’t read a book since freaking October! I have stacks of books that I’ve won or bought that I haven’t touched and I really want to get to, let alone getting reviews done for them.
So, here’s the plan. I’m going to go on hiatus until December 8th. That gives me exactly three weeks to hopefully adjust to my new working life, read some of the amazing books that I’ve neglected and to get my blogging schedule in order. I will completely understand if you choose to unfollow me or whatever, I don’t blame you. However, when I do come back I will be putting in just as much effort (if not more) as I did before and I hope that those of you who do stay will be happy to see me return. I have a small following but I will miss all of your lovely comments and getting to talk with you on a regular basis. I appreciate the support you’ve given thus far and I can’t wait to come back! I will still visit those of you that I have been following regularly, but the comments will be fewer. See you in December!
